Welcome To My Flapper Dapper "Shakti Bliss Boutique" for the Neo-Bohemian Steampunk 2020's Revolution!
Greetings Ravishing Ladies and Dapperlicious Gentlemen,
I am Shakti Bliss, a female Electroswing DJ and Vaudeville Entertainer based in sunny Southern California. I am blessed to live a mile from the beach and a short drive to Los Angeles where I often rock the stage playing my unique style of "Dirty Electro Swing" music mashing up vintage 1920's swing and jazz with dirty modern house and electronic beats. You have to listen here to believe it: www.djshaktibliss.com
I hand stitch my hats and accessories as I watch old black and white movies and listen to pop music from the 1920's and 1930's (with the occasional interlude to dirty "Burner" bass music) as a passionate hobby, now turned Etsy business, to provide my fans with unique bling made by yours truly. Every item you see in my store is one of a kind and never mass produced. I believe in quality over quantity, and dapper over drab.
My grandparents were semi-famous vaudeville musicians rumored to have run with "The Rat Pack" and toured with the USO during the war providing entertainment for the troupes with burlesque dancing girls, big band swing ensembles, and circus acts. My grandpa was once featured on the Ed Sullivan Show!
I've been stitching and crafting since I was a toddler following a lineage of seamstresses and quilt makers. My grandmother use to make gowns for Hollywood stars (where is Dr. Who to take me back in time and have my hands on those dresses and hats?). In more recent history I was once a hippie and had my own clothing line and storefront, but that tidbit we shall pleasantly forget for now.
I've always carried a unique, authentic branding as an entertainer: Polkadot dresses, hipster pants, vintage hats and gloves (an obsession of mine), reasonably high heels, my Aubrey Hepburn pin up girl bangs and so much bling I need a separate bag to contain it all when I am on tour. I have been honored to collaborate with circus troupes such as Lucent Dossier, Vaud De Vire Society and The Edwardian Ball. My favorite colors are red, black, white, gold and silver with vintage lace and pearls, a styling which you can see across all my designs.
I am a full time single mom and daytime business entrepreneur who moonlights as an entertainer on the weekends while my daughter stays with grandma and sews quilts for a non-profit organization. Your purchases help me to raise my daughter in a beautiful community by the ocean where she hopes to become a movie star someday.
I believe all our dreams can come true if we vision the highest possibility, work hard towards our goals and allow magic and intuition to do the rest. Creating this Boutique to support me as a work-from-home mom is one of my dreams.
Every item I make has a future swellegant owner in mind, although it is a great mystery until you send me a photo of you all dazzled up in the spot light. Please join my Facebook Page and post photos of your shenanigans and share your story! Thank you for your support and sharing my designs with your family and friends.
